NRA Arms The Cute Little Buggers In Fairy Tales Rewrite

This one comes via Jenny North at Victory Girls Blog

The NRA has rewritten childhood classics by inserting armed protagonists – the children have guns! And predictably, some “well-meaning” gun grabbers are not happy:

Critics accuse the NRA of undertaking a “campaign to arm children.”

“The NRA continues to stoop to new lows in the hopes of shoving guns into America’s youngest hands,” Dan Gross, president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, said in a statement.

The gist of the modern twist on the fairy tales is that the children involved have been taught gun safety and are able to protect themselves from evil witches and Big Bad Wolves. The two fairy tales that have been transformed in stories supporting the Second Amendment are Hansel and Gretel and Little Red Riding Hood (NRA versions at the links).

Looking back on these stories, even sans firearms, they are quite terrifying! Small children lost in dark woods, with no food or heat, perhaps even abandoned by their parents, and facing insurmountable odds against cannibal old ladies and ravenous wild animals. That alone should be reason enough for trigger warnings galore! But giving a gun to a child is supposedly a new low.

Ms. North makes a good point. Those fairy tales are terrifying for children, or should be. Many of them are simply parables meant to teach children, and creating that situation of fear worked, for the most part. And the NRA version removes the typical messy ends for the bad guys in the stories

The NRA rewrites also exclude any horrific demise of the antagonists – the witch is locked up and taken away, and the wolf is taken away by the huntsman, not stuffed with rocks after being cut open. No one gets eaten or burned alive. The new stories are far more benign than the original versions.

This is all about pushing for responsible gun safety at a young age. Of course, leftist gun-grabbers would prefer to leave the population unarmed, dependent on Government to show up after the crime.
